Country View

This was kind of an intuitive piece on 1/2" cradled wood. I started out with colors in an experimental wash without a clear idea of what I was going to paint. After the wash dried I really loved the peachy color and decided it would make a great spring tree.  There's a bit of contrast in the way the paint is applied; it's very thick in some places and very thin in other places where you can see the brushstrokes in the undercoating which add subtle texture. I've been trying to pay more attention to values and color notes and while this piece is small, (6" x 6") it does make a big impact on the wall.
